Choosing the right engine oil for your car is well-known to be a confusing business, with a seemingly endless array of oil types, viscosities, and ingredients to consider.
Selecting lubricants for agricultural hydraulic machinery is not dissimilar: while hydraulic greases don’t usually have the compatibility issues of motor oil, there are some aspects to consider to ensure you use the most suitable product:
- Grease for agricultural hydraulic machinery must be able to manage friction to prevent serious damage to components that would be time-consuming and expensive to repair.
- Load, temperature, and speed can all be contributory factors to equipment failure, so selecting the best oils and grease for agricultural machinery may not be an exact science.
